Kanye West is no stranger to surprise performances. Ye has dropped by to perform at shows for a number of his friends and protégés around the country, especially in the Big Apple. In recent years, he has joined CyHi da Prynce (Brooklyn Bowl in 2010), Big Sean (Irving Plaza in 2011) and 2 Chainz (P.A.C.E Board's annual Homecoming Concert in 2012).
Last Friday night, Kanye appeared at G.O.O.D. Music signed artist Travi$ Scott's show in Los Angeles to perform "New Slaves" off his latest album, Yeezus.
Last night at the 4th annual OVO Fest in Toronto, Drake brought Kanye out on stage where he proceeded to perform "New Slaves," "All Of The Lights" and "Can't Tell Me Nothing."
Cut to tonight. The musical duo known at TNGHT (comprised of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice) will be performing this evening at the Central Park Summerstage alongside Disclosure and Julio Bashmore. Scottish electronic music producer - Hudson Mohawke - is signed to G.O.O.D. Music and responsible for some of the sound from the albums Cruel Summer" and Yeezus. HudMo has been hyping up the show's afterparty at LeBaron tonight with the Been Trill Boyz and Virgil Abloh (Kanye's Creative Director) plus some "special guests."
Did we mention, Kanye has showed up for Mohawke and Lunice before...
With West already on the East Coast, a history of surprise appearances, and these clues, is there a pop up performance in order for tonight? Stay tuned. - Dino Genzano
